    HELP HELP HELP!
    I AM SO CONFUSED! :'(

    I need some help in regards to what universities I should apply to for dentistry (2017 entry)

    I am a Scottish students and I am currently taking:
    Advanced Higher Biology
    Advanced Higher Chemistry
    Higher Psychology

    Here are my stats:
    Highers: AAAAA (English, Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Modern Studies)
    National 5's: AAAAAA (English, Biology, Chemistry, Geography, French, Drama)
    UKCAT score: 593 and Band 2 SJ (Horrendous I know!)

    I have heard that CARDIFF, QUEEN'S UNI BELFAST and BRISTOL take the UKCAT into consideration the least, but I am not sure.

    Where should I apply to for dentistry with these grades and this low UKCAT score?!

    Thanks

    Bristol only use UKCAT for 10%. Its 70% for your PS and 20% on academic/quals score.
    And they welcome Scottish applicants!

    thanks, I wasn't aware of that! What do you think about applying to Cardiff and Sheffield? I've heard they don't place as much emphasis on the UKCAT score?
